After a great road trip to Brisbane last weekend (Grey-crowned Babbler,
Red-browed Treecreeper, Mangrove Gerygone, Blue-faced Honeyeater) the rest
of the week fell a bit flat (haven't decided yet, but House Sparrow,
Magpie-Lark and Little Raven seem likely to feature). Early starts and late
finishes at work have whittled away my "see anywhere" birds, but I do have
a  little time each day over this weekend, and hopefully a couple of half
days off next week. My goal for this year is 19th July (=200 birds) after
falling just short last year. I will need some cooperative birds to pop out
of the woodwork - literally - when I make lightning visits to Serendip, You
Yangs, etc. I think I've just about used up all possibilities at Western
Treatment Plant, unless I get time for a longer visit. But when I think of
what I HAVE seen already, it's easily my best birding year yet!
